The stars felt distant tonight. The air is cold, but not as crispy clean as usual. Granted, that could be the gagging smell of someone's venting dryer. The scent always makes my throat close up and my eyes feel swollen. Whatever they (whoever they are in my neighborhood) use (whatever it is), they use too … Continue reading The height of clouds
After I finished my short, stressed blog yesterday, I stepped outside with Merlin and it was snowing. The snow was so wet that it sounded like rain. The pitter-pats of it hitting the leaves, lawn, and plants was amazing. Then, went I went back inside, the pets convinced me it was time for bed. I … Continue reading Cats and stress — who asked for that?
I got out early and did some more shopping. When I got home, the cute little paw prints you see in the picture above were on my porch. It’s not from one of my cats. I do think Bella was outside while I’d gone shopping, but her feet are a bit larger than this. If … Continue reading Paw prints
I always hear people say that they don't like the cold, that they can always put on more clothes for warmth but that they can't take their skin off in order to cool down. Personally, I don't like to be a stuffed sausage, and that's what I feel like when I have several layers of … Continue reading Cold toes
Snow today. My wiper slipped off my sleigh and I had to fix it. Fortunately, I didn't go sledding. More snow coming in to make it a winter wonderland. Okay, well, it is snowing again. I'm ready to go curl up with a book. Cheers.
I am now officially halfway done with the audio editing on the 6th Loki novella. I'm hoping that in the future, my time with editing will get faster. My son and I were taking yesterday about something that his dentist had said to him and it got me to wondering if I had a similar … Continue reading Making do
I worked on the cover for the 9th Loki adventure last night and asked my youngest son for his opinion. I'm glad I did because what he came back to me with was unexpected and made me realize that I need to keep this cover for the next one. Brilliant! I haven't even started writing … Continue reading Five designs, no decision, and weeds
The picture above is icicles hanging off my house. I have a metal roof, which typically snow slides right off of. However, I have a flat section to my roof and the snow just kind of sticks there until it melts. It's a little hard to see in the picture, but the snow had actually … Continue reading Chipping ice and chasing Temmy
I think I need some warmth and sunlight. I had a sampling this morning, but the cold of the day has just been too much. I just don't think I handle cold very well. I'm ready for the snow to melt and spring to bring its greenness. I need to get out for a walk … Continue reading It’s time
Where I am, it is now the winter solstice. In the southern hemisphere, it is now the summer solstice. Okay, I have to say this is a hard concept for me to wrap my brain around and I know that it's probably got to do with the fact that I've been in the northern hemisphere … Continue reading Happy Solstice
